Our peer support groups are a safe, welcoming space to share activities, issues or thoughts and to meet people who may have experienced similar issues.
Groups may be specifically for men, women, parents, young people, people with shared beliefs, ethnicity or sexuality. They may be geographically based, or they may focus around an activity such as art, sports, music, walking, cooking etc. Groups take place in many locations around the county.
If you are interested in joining any of our peer support groups, please call our Information Line on 01865 247788 to arrange an Options Session (available over the phone or in person). An Options Session involves a short conversation about your wellbeing with one of our Wellbeing Workers and includes a short questionnaire.
During this we will identify together which of our groups or activities might be most useful at this time or signpost you to alternative activities. We will also send through further details about any recommended Mind courses or groups along with details of how to attend.
Please call our Information Line on 01865 247788 (Monday to Friday, 9.30 am – 4.30 pm) for more information and to book an Options Session.
